Plueral Based Nodule /Questions about CT scan findings

Can you please explain to me in simple terms what these test results MEAN? Also, can nodules be ON the lungs or are nodules always found IN the lungs Please clarify.

Here are the findings: In a recent CT scan the doctor noticed  a 2mm pleural based nodule in the lower posterior right hemithorax with a blood vessel leading directly to it, noncalcified, suggesting it may be a small lymph node.

The spleen demonstrates a single small hypoattenuating lesion most superior aspect spleen, image 16 sequence 7, measuring 9 mm in greatest dimension.  

Thank you!
